We observed the field of GRB 131127A (Markwardt et al. GCN 15516),
using CQEUAN (Park et al. 2012) on the 2.1-m Otto-Struve telescope 
at the McDonald Observatory in Texas, US. The observation started 
at 2013-11-29 01:31:43 UT, or about 1.63 days after the BAT alert. 
A series of images were taken in r, i, and z-band for about 45 min.

We identify the red source reported in Butler et al. (GCN 15525), but
no significant fading of the source was found with z = 21.90 +- 0.15 AB mag,
consistent with Z = 21.85 +- 0.16 mag from Butler et al. (GCN 15525).
This suggests that the red source may not be the GRB afterglow,
or the light curve is changing very slowly.
